This week I have a variety of links – WordPress, zombies, negative comments, un-packaging and more.
It seems that Spring may finally be on the way. At the beginning of this week it was 15 degrees and snowing. Now at the end, it is sunny and 60. Seems a bit extreme. Anyway, this week I have information about twitter, fun with photos, threaded comments in Thesis, content theft, and happiness.
The Mid-February List includes Ebook Readers, Page Hacks for WordPress comments, 2.7.1 auto upgrade woes, social icons, and OMG Joaquin.
Probably one of the most talked about features of 2.7 is that threaded comments are built in. A plugin is no longer required for this functionality.
The problem is that it takes more that simply upgrading to 2.7 for this feature to be available. If you’ve got a brand new 2.7 ready theme then, yes, threaded comments will work. If not, you will need to make the theme “2.7 ready”.
So, you’re in luck because I’m going to walk you through the steps. I’m not sure if I like the way they look but I do like the functionality. I have saved my original files in case I decide to revert back.
On my online WordPress journeys I come across a number of WordPress plugins.
Some are interesting, some are annoying, and some are very useful. Here I have listed 5 that are definitely interesting and could be useful for some users.
Areas covered by these plugins are twitter, tweetbacks, spoilers, email to staff, and statistics.
